Default Install Third Party Radio

I wanted to install a gps radio. Is this possible to do that with this vehicle. I probably won't purchase this one but something exactly like this and this wide. It's a Double 2 DIN radio. Has anyone tried this before.

Hi Evonna,

Yes it can be done. Depending on the year of your model as the design of the interior changed. Therein, you must buy the appropriate modified aftermarket radio bezel to accommodate the larger "double din" navigation radio

Here is a second generation bezel kit on E-bay:

01 to 05 referred to as 1st generation or
06 to 10 2nd generation models. You should peruse the "SOUND AND SECURITY" to find examples of the double din radio installations.

Check out Crutchfeld. They can tell you what will and won't work for you and even instruct you how to install it if you purchase from them. They have a very good tech line. Danny has some good points, but he just likes showing off his PT. Especially now that he has one of Jerrys balls in it! LOL Just teasing you Danny, you know we all love ya. Or at least your Vert!
